That is my opinion ;)

Well, you are seeing it from the "wrong side"; you maintain a
myspell-spellchecker enabled application and thinking from that side
(I do, too).

But what I am currently doing is thinking from the perspective of the
myspell-* dictionary packages for which it makes sense to recommend
the myspell-spellchecking-featured applications as much
as the ispell dictionaries depend on ispell. A Depends is superfluous
here since it then would install all 4 big packages which can't be the
sense ;)

Don't you think?
